WHS fails to retore W8.1 to an Asus X501A error 0xc000000e RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    Have tried several times to restore my Asus X501A from several of the WHS 2011 backups but all that then happens is once the restore is done the X501A goes into Automatic recovery mode with the error code 0xc000000e and I have three options,

    1) Press enter and try again,

    2) Press F8 to go to start up settings none of these work and 

    3) Press esc to go to UEFI settings which I can go to the BIOS by just pressing F2

    Now I can see all my recovery partitions and have not played with them but I do believe that upgrading from W8 to W.8.1 mucks up the normal recovery system on these newer laptops but that doe not explain why WHS 2011 is failing after all I have recovered our other machines that were using W8.1 on to our WHS 2011 server.

    I cannot be sure if this error message is more to do with the X501A than the WHS 2011 restore process.

    Anyone have any ideas of what I am doing wrong here?

    Many thanks in advance.

  • Go into your Bios and check to make sure that the right boot drive is selected. Best, Howtodo
